Community engagement is more than volunteering your time for a few hours here and there, doing service that makes you feel good, or merely addressing surface-level community challenges. Community engagement means truly understanding the fabric of a community, the interconnections among our various communities, and both the challenges and assets associated therein.
We strongly encourage you to pursue opportunities to engage in the community at all levels. These opportunities may be local, domestic, or even international.
